For a child under age three:

The purpose of this review is to determine:

The degree to which progress on major outcomes or annual goals is being made; and

(B)

Whether revision of major outcomes or goals or services is needed.

(c)

This review may be carried out by a meeting or by another means that is acceptable to the parents and other participants. However, if IFSP revisions are necessary, an IFSP meeting must be conducted.
